Trades to Industry ROom

Embark on a journey through Berks County’s past by visiting the four alcoves that highlight its most prominent industries. Discover the fascinating history behind agriculture, foods, textiles, and iron and steel to gain a deeper understanding of this region’s unique background. Berks County served as a major hub for industry, commerce, and transportation, due in part to the Philadelphia & Reading Railroad’s global prominence during the late-nineteenth century.
